An intense personality with an abrasive manner, Peckinpah continued to stir up controversy with Straw Dogs (1971), going on to direct Steve McQueen in The Getaway the following year. But not all his films were marked by a high body count, as evidenced in the Western comedies The Ballad of Cable Hogue (1970) and Junior Bonner (1972).
Before his death from a stroke in 1984, Peckinpah also helmed Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (1973) and Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974).
Director Sam Peckinpah's brilliant 1969 Western epic tells the story of a bunch of aging outlaws, led by Pike Bishop (William Holden), whose botched plans to pull off one last job forces them to collude with a crooked Mexican general (Emilio Fernández) -- leading to ugly bloodshed. Ernest Borgnine, Ben Johnson and Jaime Sánchez co-star in this special edition, which includes never-before-seen outtakes and three exclusive documentaries.
